Network and Communication solutions

Core network

Today, core networks represent the backbone of any network infrastructure, which in today's global business environment combine internal and external forms of communication. Outages, unavailability of information, failures in the management of resources are just some of the reasons that lead to a decrease in productivity, which require careful strategic planning of network business.

Changed business conditions, based on the implementation of new collaborative platforms, dictate the direction of development of more complex and demanding communication networks. Quickly routing of information to the final devices, the presence of video and VoIP technologies, efficient data management, sound, image and video content and enhancement of business applications are essential requirements which the core network must fulfill. These business trends have led to the development of Cisco service - oriented network architecture that provides the greatest degree of utilization of the network infrastructure, scalability, rapid return on investment and simplicity in system maintenance.

Network and Communication solutions

Unified communications

UC) became one of the solutions that the company can leverage to reduce costs and simultaneously maximize profit. Unified communications indicate the integration of IP telephony systems, conference systems, mobility, voice mail, contact centers and mobility applications and applications for WEB conferencing into a single communication unit. This integrated system enables easy, timely and reliable communication in real time and accelerates all business processes.

IP telephony

Cisco IP Communications consist of processing applications for voice traffic and IP endpoints. It is a system for voice communication within the "Cisco Unified Communications" portfolio. The backbone of the system is a "Cisco Unified Communication Manager" (CUCM), which emerge as the ideal solution to replace the old analog PBX system. The system is characterized on orientation toward service and scalability, aimed at reducing costs and simpler communication.

The biggest advantage in the implementation of Cisco Unified Communication Manager are scalability, reduction of IT complexity, easy operation and maintenance. The system is suitable for companies of 50 to 20.000 users and with more remote locations. According to the principle of "Pay as you grow" users can easily expand the number of users using the same communication platform. CUCM supports integration with applications (Outlook, Lotus Notes...) and "Soft" clients which enables communication via a PC when employees are out of office. CUCM is ideal for rapidly growing companies with remote locations and with the need in a flexible infrastructure which can monitor the demands of its customers and business. To reduce response time and increase productivity of clients, CUCM provides a "Mobility" and "Presence" solutions that enable users to increase productivity.

  • "Cisco Unified Mobility" is an integrated solution within the CUCM application that allows one access number for desktop IP phone, mobile phone, "soft" client
  • "Cisco Unified Presence" is a tool that allows insight into the availability of the client, setting up voice and video calls, send e-mails and instant messages. It is proved to be a remarkable tool for contact centers in finding appropriate experts for solving the problems

For seamless communication it is required to use IP phones which can keep pace with increasingly demanding customers and increasingly sophisticated functions of CUCM. Cisco IP phones are divided into four series with the aim of better ratio of investment. Depending on the model, IP phones provide the full range of options of exchange of information and communication, supporting various applications, and beside the voice calls they provide video calls, also. Cisco Cius represent a top offer in IP phones category that follows the current trend of "office virtualization." It contains the IP phone features, HD video and telepresence devices and tablets with an emphasis on the mobility of users.

Classroom Manager

Today's trends require increasing use of technology in teaching but also the ability to manage both student’s single devices and the content itself.

Classroom Manager provides teachers with more efficiency in transfer of knowledge by using technology. Solution contains a number of tools and features that have been developed in cooperation with teachers with the aim to simplify use and provide the best possible integration into classes. Teachers and their assistants can manage students devices and guide them through the course content from one place e.g. from their control device. It can also help students to stay focused on the lecture with the help of a series of features such as: control of students screens, control of application usage, Internet websites, printing and other functionalities. To provide help in understanding the content, teachers and students can create a students journal in digital form and use a range of tools for targeted student testing such as quiz, student surveys, questions and answers and others.

Additionally, Classroom Manager offers the possibility in using separate applications for technicians and administrators, which provides an overview and management of all devices within the school and usage of additional applications for support in the classroom that can be used by assistants inside the classroom for better and more detailed monitoring over the work of students.

Frequently the schools combine various mixed environments in which there are desktops, laptops and tablets, making it difficult to create the lecture curriculum, its content and to use the equipment during lesson. In addition to these challenges, students bring their own devices that could be used or which they want to use for content monitoring, which creates additional problems. Classroom Manager is a unique and centralized solution for all major platforms - operating systems (Windows, Android, Mac, iOS, Linux, Chrome OS and Kindle).

Classroom Manager is made on the functionalities that help to build and sustain best practices/ways to transfer knowledge to students. This solution is unique because it combines students Digital Journal together with the functionalities of "Q&A" for quick and effective testing and evaluation of students.

Questions and Answers (Q&A) module

Funkcionalnost „Pitanja i odgovori“ je namjenski kolaboracijski alat koji nastavnicima omogućava davanje naglaska na ključne točke predavanja kao i mjerenje i ocjenu razumijevanja nastavnog sadržaja učenika još tijekom samog predavanja.

Functionality of "Questions and Answers" is dedicated collaborative tool that enables teachers to give emphasis on the key points of the lectures as well as the measurement and assessment of students understanding of content even during the lectures. Solution provides best practice for continuous knowledge assessment, allowing teachers to verbally ask questions to students in order to test the understanding of lessons, including the new ways of testing (e.g. "Basketball questioning") and providing „awards“ to individuals and, if necessary for groups of students.

Testing methods can be as follows:

  • First to Answer:
  • After questioning the students, teacher defines the response time. After the expiry of the time, students who know the answers can answer via the application on their devices while the teachers on their device follow the order of registrations. The teacher then selects the fastest answer and questions particular student. The answer can be immediately assessed as correct or incorrect. If necessary, question can be forwarded to another registered student. After giving correct answer, student or students may be awarded with a star or previously earned star can be taken away.

  • Enter the answer:
  • Teacher through the classroom management system puts an answer to the question that he/she will ask. After sending the questions, students on their devices can enter the response/answer. The correctness of the response is provided in real time on teacher’s device. The student or students may be awarded with a star or previously earned star can be taken away.

  • Random selection:
  • The system randomly selects students; whom teacher can ask the question.

  • Peer Assessment:
  • Students are grouped to proceed the teamwork as well as team competition for the award – a star. Members of the group can be randomly selected or students have the option of signing in the group by itself. Each student puts his answer to the question and the winner is the group that has the most correct answers as can be seen in real time on teacher's device.

  • Evaluation of other colleagues:
  • Students are encouraged to give their views on the response that was given by other colleagues. That is done by selecting the correct or incorrect answer on their device. Teacher see the results in real time.

  • Digital Journal:
  • During the course all the relevant documents related to the subject can be saved and stored in .PDF format. This provides the availability of lesson materials to all students as well as the ability to share it with those who are not present in classroom. Digital Journal allows teachers to store the following activities, which are available for the use to teachers and students during the lesson.

    • Details and objectives of lesson content
    • Teachers notes, as well as students notes
    • Presentations, lesson content, assignments and papers/documents done during the lecture
    • The results of the survey
    • Screenshots from whiteboard
    • The results of the examinations
    • Internet websites used during lecture
    • Copies of conversations/chats in digital format

    Digital Journal simplifies teachers work including:

    • Icon on the toolbar "Tutor Toolbar" for insight into the Digital Journal usage status
    • Appendix of chapters in Digital Journal
    • Inclusion of Students Register within Digital Journal
    • Creation of bookmarks on the basis of teachers chapters
    • Digital Journal synchronization, if a student fails to receive a particular item the same can be inserted in the correct section of the teachers Journal
    • Adjustment/Branding with school's identity (logo, ...)
  • Student surveys:
  • Simple student survey provides a fast and reliable method of knowledge examination regarding the lesson content. Surveys can be created by using existing templates or pre-defined questions and answers which provides fast examination and instant access to all responses and a summary/report for the whole class. According to the results it is possible to create groups of students. Likewise, the results of the survey can be presented to the whole class.

  • Student knowledge tests and quizzes:
  • Creation of knowledge tests allows you to create questions and answers that can include text, images, audio and video. Questions are stored in a database that is subsequently possible to share. Questions or answers can be designed in different ways. There are eight different styles; of questions with the possibility of selecting one or more correct answers, questions with the possibility of pairing answers, questions with the possibility of single and multiple correct or incorrect answers to the questions with possibility of giving answers in the correct order. While creating, teacher can set the limits for a particular grade (e.g. over 75% = excellent). Students progress and success is visible in real time on teacher's device. Knowledge tests start and end at the same time so that all students have the same time to solve it. At the end of the examination, teacher can show individual test results to each student and, if necessary can display the correct answers that students understand where they made a mistake and also to determine that part of the lesson.

Documents and fax

Solutions for electronic documents and fax solutions

Modern technology greatly effect on the way of business communication with domination of electronic mail and on-line business. However, the growing popularity of communication tools has not supplanted the use of fax, which is still an irreplaceable solution for situations that require a higher degree of security of sent documents or information. On the other hand, for the known types of fax machines it is difficult to cope with ever-faster business growth, in which the classic "manual" transmission (which includes a long process of submitting), printing a document on a printer has become superfluous.

In order to make business communication smoothly and with minimal cost, STORM Computers offers users with most advanced solutions for the distribution of electronic documents, like the fax solutions over the Internet. These solutions allow you to send and receive documents using Internet technology in an efficient, simple and low-cost way. Integration with existing business e-mail software on the way that it takes to send a fax directly through e-mail system and also, the reduction of possible errors in the work and time saving are just some of the additional benefits of distributing documents over the Internet.

Security solutions

Privacy and security

In the modern era, information and communication networks are exposed to increasing challenges in terms of safety and security of information and data from various kinds of logical threats from hackers, targeted industrial espionage and internal threats including employees who with involuntary or intentional actions lead to theft or destruction of information or access to confidential information.

This from the one hand, requires the establishment of reliable and high performance storage systems (archive) of information and its recovery from archived media in a fast and reliable way. So that this kind of system can allow the preservation of intellectual capital embodied in the company's business and technical information. On the other hand, the security of ICT systems must not pose an obstacle to productivity but must accelerate business processes and data availability.

Cisco Self Defending Network ("Auto Defense Network") is a unified system of network care who covers all security aspects of network environments; such as networking equipment, servers and applications. This approach to security solutions is the foundation for a network environment that can be "automatically" defended against attacks and security threats and includes key segments such as network access control, authentication of clients, VPN, intrusion detection and prevention and web filtering. This concept is based on sophisticated technology combined with advanced technologies and systems that are coordinated with main aim to maintain the operability of the entire system or take action if that functionality is compromised. The realization of this advanced care is based on specialized hardware firewalls, which beside only the firewall functions integrate into a self-facilities a VPN tunnels management, protected by advanced cryptographic methods.

In addition, firewalls or its modular architecture, provide flexibility in the implementation of additional functionality (preventing unauthorized intrusion, the filtering of email and web traffic...) where the respective functions are taken by specialized modules. These features are also found in specialized equipment like the IPS/IDS platforms or the modern generation of integrated services routers (ISR G2 family).

Protection systems provide:

  • Effective maintenance of the integrity and confidentiality of sensitive information
  • Network reliability
  • Increase availability
  • Cost control

STORM Computers is a Cisco partner specialized in advanced implementation of security technologies and with actual implementation experience (Cisco Advanced Security).

Security solutions

Access Control

Network Access Control (Network Admission Control - NAC) is the system of security settings control for clients who have access to information - communication systems of the company.

NAC checks does the client meets predefined safety requirements before it gains approval for access to the network, regardless of whether it is an internal user or customer.

Security solutions

Authentication

Effective implementation of security policy includes limiting access to the network for users with the right of access. Client authentication can be implemented using a static password, domain and tokens. Static password and username is the simplest method of identification of users and represents the lowest level of protection. Authentication across domains by using domain user names and passwords, represent the higher level of protection and it is limited to the domain customer.

One of the best ways of controlling access to the network is through token, where each access on the network generates a new password and enables the highest level of security protection.

Security solutions

Firewall and VPN

Last two or three decades firewalls have passed through evolutionary path from simple packet filters (which are actually a list of movements controlled by IP address or the type of application) to the recent highly sophisticated algorithms that recognize the context of particular applications that are capable to "conclude" if there is some illegal trade that represents an attempt to exploit weaknesses in the communication protocol (exploit). For many years there is a clearly defined need from companies and individuals that its presence in the networked global communication infrastructure need to be secured from malicious traffic.

Firewall

Specific performance of firewall can only be application, a software solution that can be installed on practically any server platform or a specialized hardware solution. These devices are optimized, often with a significant part of the operations that are performed on chips (hardware accelerated) which are usually with superior performance, but more expensive solutions. The tendency of technological development have led that today every respectable firewall has integrated functionality of a VPN or functionality that allows the same device also terminate VPN (IPSEC mostly) tunnels. Virtual Private Network (VPN) provides secure access to company data from remote locations, using the public infrastructure; the Internet. VPN users can connect to a central database, share information and communicate with others, like they are being located within a local area network.

VPN solutions

VPN solutions are most often used to connect to a company branch or enabling workers on the field to access data within the company. Solution is not limited only to firewalls, it is applicable to the routing platform, also. This means that the user selects a set of functionality to the router and it can also include VPN functionality (in this sense and firewall functionality). Additionally, the firewall and VPN functionality can be implemented on server platforms, therefore, non-specialized platforms. STORM Computers has many years of experience in implementing firewalls and VPNs on Cisco platforms but as well as the server platforms where market segment includes the most demanding production environments and Internet service providers (ISPs).

Security solutions

Intrusion preventing

Solutions for detecting and preventing intrusions

Not honest fight in industrial competitiveness but also a growing range of technologies and protocols have led to rapid growth of industrial development in the production of various malicious solutions in order to compromise information entities, with the aim of identity theft, Firewall service (Denial of Service), enabling unauthorized access (Trojan horses, backdoor applications) or deletion and/or changing of information and data (viruses, worms,...). All these are examples of threats that can seriously and adversely affect the operations of the company's reputation, if they are not adequately controlled and managed. In this sense, a whole range of IDS/IPS (intrusion detection/intrusion prevention system) products are developed with the aim of detecting and preventing such unauthorized operations.

These systems exist as an independent specialized hardware platforms but they can be integrated into modules that are easily installed in the modular architecture of modern routers and firewalls. These systems work in real time and are able to analyze the internal and external threats to information systems. In addition to regular update of some specific attacks, these systems have the algorithms with the capacity that on behavior analysis protocols they can identify a certain pattern of traffic as malicious, even in these scenarios, they are able to initiate certain steps in terms of blocking this traffic without user intervention. Specialized highly sophisticated Cisco IPS/IDS platform are bases on which STORM Computers enables its customers appropriate control and management of such threats. Years of experience is reflected in Cisco specialization in the field of safety technology (Advanced Security) with proven experience in a demanding market segments, such as Internet service providers and enterprise segment.

Security solutions

Antivirus

Electronic mail has become the dominant form of everyday business communications. Due to the increasing demands for efficient access to data and increased number of received and sent messages, security threats have grown, such as various types of viruses, fraud, intellectual property theft, unsolicited email (spam). For most users the amount of illegitimate e-mail reaches 90% of mail, which requires continuous improvement of security solutions and expanding in security portfolio of electronic mail.

Cisco Ironport Email Security

IronPort email security appliances are highly scalable solutions for protection against security threats, providing applications to filter unwanted mail and viruses, to analyze the content of electronic mail and the application of security policies. Thanks to its modularity, the Cisco IronPort Email Security solutions can be fully adapted to each user.

Security solutions

Web filtering

Evolution in the distribution of information via electronical way, recorded exponential growth in recent years. Web content from their Web 2.0 evolutionary step, provide a new paradigm of information exchange, as well as new technical and business risks. It's not easy just to classify web traffic whether it is legitimate or not, without the help of specialized algorithms and devices capable of analyzing the context of traffic and "understanding" the application protocol. In this sense, producers of devices and applications for the control of the most popular Internet protocols, are facing a difficult task - to provide communication without compromising the performance of the communication parties.

Whether you're using applications or software solutions up properly on the servers of general purpose or highly specialized modules or hardware platform (whose only goal is control of this protocol), it is a complex system whose effectiveness greatly depends on the skills of staff who set and maintain them.

Any such system is only as good as a good is a professional engineer who supervise and manage them. Malicious java scripts, buffer overflows on web servers identified in various operating systems, manipulation of stored passwords and cookies (identity theft), access to pornographic content or content that promote hatred and intolerance, the pages which are trying to get information about you from your browser without authorization, control types files that are removed from the individual pages, social networks and operations that are permitted within them, are examples of threats that modern products have and need to identify and limit or eliminate their destructiveness.

One of the competing options for addressing these threats are certainly a specialized service modules from the Cisco firewall family. In this way, beside the firewall of "general purpose", users can use skolovski module specialized for the analysis and prevention of unwanted web traffic with a wide range of options allowing for that particular user, or group of users, where and how to record suspicious transactions and to send alerts and draw attention on the risks. In addition, STORM Computers has the experience in open source software solutions that perform these tasks on the server (non-specialized) platforms. Such solutions, regardless of the type of implementation, provide centralized control over content and transactions within the web traffic and report on the details of these transactions, giving companies access to the profile of traffic and users that may be a risk factor, suggesting measures to reduce risks rising from those.
